RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION
Important elements of Scientific Researched-Based Interventions (SRBI) include:
George Batsche, an RTI expert, sums up the definition of RTI by saying it is the practice of (1) providing high-quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs and (2) using learning rate over time and level of performance to (3) make important educational decisions.
In the Response to Intervention (RTI) model, a student with academic delays is given one or more research-validated interventions. The student's academic progress is monitored frequently to see if those interventions are sufficient to help the student to catch up with his or her peers.
